Friday, Dec 2, 1887 Still cold with a snow storm threatening. I am working on my picture and improving it. Inness says he keeps painting on his old pictures and as his knowledge and facility increase he improves them. I think it a good idea and practise it somewhat myself. George Hall called. An excellent man in every way but like most of us artists, too sensitive. We have to pay for it. I had a letter from Sara last night. Cousin Rachel is with her and she expects me on Saturday. Went around to the Century and met some of the artists.
